Drew: Philly fans 'have a nice chant going'

PHILADELPHIA -- Speaking after the Red Sox' 5-2 win over the Phillies Thursday afternoon, J.D. Drew commented on the Citizens Bank Park fans once again serenading the outfielder with boos each time he was announced to hit.

"It was probably a little bit crazier over at the Vet. Now they’re selling out every game so they have a nice chant going on out there," said Drew, who entered the game in the seventh inning as the pinch-hitter for Darnell McDonald. The outfielder lined out to center field in his first at-bat, and then singled in his second time up.

"It is what it is. Hey, it will stay there. As long as I’m playing this game, they’ll remember, that’s for sure. I think my little brother gets it, too. Stephen played right across the river in independent ball. He used to get worn out over there. I’m surprised they didn’t boo Drew Sutton, those guys. He plays on the Red Sox with the name Drew. It...

Red Sox clubhouse reacts to Cameron move

PHILADELPHIA -- Following their 5-2 win over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park Thursday afternoon, members of the Red Sox reacted to the move by the team to designate Mike Cameron for assignment prior to the game.

Jon Lester: "Cam’s a great guy, great teammate. He’ll definitely be missed. Great clubhouse guy. Probably one of the best teammates I’ve ever played with, and that’s both on and off the field."

Dustin Pedroia: "He's a great teammate. He did a lot of things in the clubhouse and a lot of things on the field for us. He's going to be missed. He's one of the guys. It's tough but I think that's the hard part about the business part of the game. He'll definitely be missed."

Terry Francona: "Very tough -- and tough for Theo [Epstein]. Theo did most of the talking, and I appreciated the way he spoke to Cam. As a player, I wish...

Lester, Varitek lead Sox to win

PHILADELPHIA -- Jon Lester pitched seven shutout innings and Jason Varitek homered twice as the Red Sox avoided a three-game sweep at the hands of the Phillies with a 5-2 win on Thursday at Citizens Bank Park.

Dustin Pedroia also homered for the Sox (46-34), an eighth-inning blast that was followed by the Varitek's second home run of the game. The Sox enjoyed their most productive offensive game of the series despite the absence of Kevin Youkilis (sore left ankle) and with a lineup that saw Darnell McDonald in the second spot, Pedroia batting cleanup, Varitek fifth and Josh Reddick (two hits) sixth.

Lester and Cole Hamels were locked in a scoreless duel through four innings, but Hamels did not return for the fifth inning after an Adrian Gonzalez fourth-inning line drive struck the left-hander on his right hand. The Sox took advantage of the absence of Hamels, scoring a pair of runs in the fifth (RBI singles by Drew Sutton and Jacoby Ellsbury) and a...

No deal: NBA will lockout players

According to reports from New York where the league was meeting with the player's union, the two sides were unable to come to an agreement on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement and the owners will lock the players out at 12:01 a.m. on July 1.

According to CBS' Ken Berger, the union does not plan to decertify and will continue to negotiate with the owners.

A lockout has been expected as early as two years who when the two sides began talking about a new CBA. The owners proposed what they called a "flex cap" last week, which would have set the salary cap at $62 million and kept some version of the exceptions that were part of the old agreement, but the player's union estimated the players would lose up to $7 billion over the life of the 10-year agreement. The players have proposed keeping the...

Theo on Cameron: I'll take the hit

PHILADELPHIA -- Speaking prior to his team's series finale against the Phillies Thursday afternoon, Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein took the blame for the signing of Mike Cameron not working out. Cameron, who had been inked to a two-year, $15.5 million deal prior to the 2010 season, was designated for assignment prior to Thursday's game.

Cameron struggled throughout the '11 season, hitting .149 with a .477 OPS in 33 games while playing in a part-time capacity. The outfielder was coming back from sports hernia surgery, which limited the 38-year-old to just 48 games in '10. 

"We've been scratching our heads. I'll take the hit on this one," said Epstein regarding the acquisition of Cameron and subsequent lack of production from the 38-year-old. "We try to be disciplined with trying to look for players in their primes when we bring them in. Sometimes, you just can't do that. Mike was still a productive player when we got him,...
